Unfortunately, this door will be locked, and you will also need to have the most powerful version of Alohomora Charm in order to obtain the special key for opening the door.

Normally, obtaining that key is done by going through the Headmaster’s office. However, you cannot do that before obtaining a password for it, which is done very late in the main story.

Luckily, there is an alternative way that will allow you to access this door much earlier (as soon as you obtain the level 3 Alohomora spell). Simply mount your broom and fly all the way to the Headmaster’s office. You’ll notice a specific staircase, which should help you orient yourself.
